Event planners and attendees who have hosted or attended an event in Bakersfield talk about their experience:

"It was truly a pleasure working with the City of Bakersfield and the local organizing committee on the 2010 Amgen Tour of California. From the introductory meetings months ago, to the countless number of emails, phone calls and meetings that followed, ultimately culminating with the incredible Event that we all witnessed in May, I can't thank you all enough for your unwavering support and enthusiasm on behalf of your residents, municipalities and participating staff." - Kelly Greene, Medalist Sports

 "I want to take this opportunity, once again, to say THANK YOU to you and your entire staff. Everyone I work with, Matt, Chris, Penny, Peggy and of course yourself, knows how to make a convention feel at "home" and anything I needed they were always right there to see that it was taken of. From early-on phone calls and e-mails to the last minute things that pop up they were more than ready to make sure it got done. From my side of the fence, I can sense a "caring" attitude when working with them and that means a lot." - Mike C., NSRA Event Director

"Why Bakersfield? That's easy. It's a perfectly-sized modern city with state-of-the-art facilities, a large inventory of clean, family-oriented hotel rooms, dozens of welcoming restaurants, and a city leadership that values our championships and supports us in every way possible. Bakersfield is a tremendous host." - John T., California Interscholastic Federation

"We wanted to thank you for stepping up and sponsoring the kick-off party on Thursday night. Hope that your generosity returns to you many times over...without your sponsorship, NSRA couldn't look so good...thanks again for your help." - Tom and Penny L., NSRA attendees
